All over GP. Lots of zigzagging behind Walmart, Albertsons, Safeway and everywhere in between.  Found 49 cents so it was a productive morning...

PM: 5 miles around the hospital, into Fruitdale, and home past the middle school. New shoes (Kinvara) that feel great.

Ran around the hospital, then into downtown and around the HS track, then home. Productive morning for money the last two days.

10 miles in Coos Bay.  I ran across the bay north, then south, then back into town and around the high school.  Highlight of the morning was getting chased by a weiner dog for 2 city blocks.  After a while I expected the small dog's heart to explode, but eventually he/she/it gave up and returned home.

9 miles in GP. I ran past the hospital and into All Sports Park. Every time I go there, I wonder why I don't run here more. Such nice, smooth, soft running surface that is easy on the legs. Ran 5 loops, then returned home.

21 miles this morning.  The first 9 were easy around the neighborhoods west of town and out to Jerome Prairie School.  I used the bathroom at the convenience store and then started a 10 mile tempo section on Applegate Rd.  Just wanted to to keep everything below 6:00 and I was able to do so (except for the first one where I wasn't sharp mentally).  Splits were 6:13, 5:47, 5:54, 5:54, 5:54. 5:52, 5:49, 5:55. 5:50, 5:38.  Pretty tired by the time I returned back on Dowell Rd. after passing the elementary school and Redwood Rd.  Ran slow the final 2 miles and made it home before hitting the wall.  Took some sport beans at mile 7 and no water throughout.  Getting hot here in Southern Oregon...

I wore my heart rate monitor for the first time in while.  First 9 miles, averaged around 120, from mile 9 to 10.5 it slowly climbed from 120 to 150, then it stayed between 150-156 for the next 9 miles.  The last 800 meters of the tempo I tried to push it a little (but there wasn't much there...) and it climbed to 164.  Quickly dropped to 135-140 range on cool down.
